Stevie Nicks apologizes for comments about Nicki Minaj

I knew it was coming. After saying she would have killed Nicki Minaj for her outburst on Mariah Carey during American Idol auditions, Stevie Nicks has now apologized for her remarks and “deeply regrets” what she said.

Read the full story here:

Hours after her words hit the blogosphere, another headling-generating footnote in the bizarre Minaj-Carey beef that could just as well be a PR stunt (like Nigel Lythgoe would admit to fueling the fire), Nicks issued a genuine-seeming mea culpa.

“I want to apologize for my remarks about Nicki Minaj’s behavior toward Mariah Carey which I said during a long and exhausting day of interviews,” she said Tuesday in a statement to THR. “It was very out of character for me and I deeply regret what I said. I feel very protective toward Mariah Carey who has gone through many difficulties in her life and I spoke without thinking. I think all artists should be respectful toward one another and that includes me. I am truly sorry.”

No word from Team Nicki as of yet.

Minaj is a gutter rat with a gun to the head of her "carreer".

Rock on, Stevie Nicks.  Class isn't something Nicki Minaj comprehends. (But "trash"? She's an expert!) The Queen of Rock n Roll personifies it.

@jeffreychrist I agree with you and with Mik. Stevie apologized and stated her actions were wrong. Where is the apology from the trashy catalyst? Stevie is the queen!

@Idol cookie @Trey_ @Mikhail XO That was not even me. Honestly. I don't know why you all keep blaming me for that. I have never created multiple accounts for this site? What does that look like? If I wanted to say something, I would have said it myself, I would have no reason to hide behind another alter-ego. Honestly, that was not me, I have never operated any other accounts.

@Trey_ @Mikhail XO I remember a post by Trey as his sidekick, Fresh2, saying something about Mik not liking People "because they are girls". It was done in a derogatory manner. I'd believe there was worse stuff that was deleted by you, Trey, Fresh etc. Mik is a national treasure at Rickey's! Lay off him.
